IntroductionThe Theory of Evolution was first introduced to us by Charles Darwin. He was on a voyage to the galapagos islands and he was surprised by the variety of species of animals that lived there so he developed the theory of evolution.Explanation of the TheoryIn 1859 Charles Darwin published his theory of natural selection amid an explosion of controversy which brought more questions than answers. Evolution has several parts. The first is the theory that all organisms are descendents of earlier species except they have somewhat adapted to the changes in the environment, the second part is that we all share common ancestors.Mechanisms of EvolutionMutationsA mutation is a change in genetic material.
An organism’s DNA affects how its phenotype and genotype. So a change in it can cause changes in all aspects of its behavior look and biology. Mutations are essential to evolution; it is what makes them evolve. Punctuated Equilibrium It is the theory that makes up for gaps in the fossil records. According to this theory species evolve quickly in a short period of time. These periods are separated by long periods of time and barley any evolution.
The Evolutions Evidence ( w/ explanation)They have similarities in body structure, similarities in early development, and similarities in DNA and proteins. Critiquing the theoryThe theory is fake because in the quran it says that allah is perfect and has the power over everything. Not only that, if things evoluted it would have to show some fossils that have a half bird half reptile for example. People still insist that the theory is true even though they haven’t found one fossil that fits in those conditions.
They just made another theory that make evolution happen fast. It is like saying 1+1=3 and when people say it isn’t true you just make up another theory saying that in some cases 1=2.Islam’s Opinion About the TheoryIslam says that this theory isn’t true because in the quran it says in surah Imran ayah 59. He says in that ayah that verily he has created Isa and Adam from dust. This means he has not made the animals evolve into humans but he has created us from noting without the help of a mom or a dad or a sibling. Allah is the best through quran and hadeethAllah has the power to give life and take life whenever he wants.
There are many verses in the quran that say Allah is one and he controls all of the powers of the worlds and the universe and beyond. For example a well known surah, Ikhlas it says in the first ayah “say allah is one the one and only”. There are also ayahs that talk about Allah’s power for example in surah anam in the first ayah it says, “Praise be to Allah Who created the heavens and the earth and made the darkness and the light. Yet those who reject faith hold (others) as equal with their Guardian-Lord.
” in a hadeeth it says, “The sun and the moon do not eclipse because of the death or life (i.e. the birth) of someone but they are two signs amongst the signs of Allah.” It shows that allah causes these phenomenon with his power.ConclusionI conclude that darwinism is not correct because there is a lack of evidence. Even if there was proof I wouldn’t believe it. The Quran says that Allah is one and I believe god more that a person who thinks that humans evolved from animals.
Even Darwin himself had many gaps he could not figure out so he wrote that in a chapter.
